About Benevolent Pleasures of Sight
Camille Solyagua’s photographs of natural history function within a tradition of “Wunderkammers”. Cabinets of natural curiousities brought together by visual analogies. Benevolent Pleasures of Sight presents a comprehensive selection of Solyagua’s photographs in an edition of 1000 numbered copies. Robert Sobiezek’s introduction initially discusses how her work unites an 18th - century notion of extraordinary eccentricities with a Surrealist concept of convulsive beauty. While Ruth Bernhard writes of her own deeply felt response to Solyagua’s imagery.
